Our war veterans deserve the best this country has to offer. They have risked all to protect the freedoms we enjoy on a daily basis. We at Return with Freedom, Inc. are deeply grateful for their service. We have seen the need for help in re-entering their lives here at home after experiencing atrocities most of us can’t even imagine. The high rate of suicide and poverty among returning military is not acceptable. Not only should they Return with Honor, they should Return with Freedom – freedom from anxiety, nightmares, suicidal thoughts – back to fullness of life that can be enjoyed with their family and friends.
PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) is highly prevalent in our soldiers that have been deployed. Over 300,000 veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have been diagnosed with PTSD. Not to mention veterans from other wars - even soldiers from World War II who were diagnosed with “Shell Shock” still suffer in some ways today.
There is a psychotherapy called EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) which is shown to have significant impact in treatment of PTSD. However, there is significant specialized training involved and the cost of treatment is high. For this reason, Return with Freedom, Inc. has been formed to provide sliding scale (according to your ability to pay) therapy to our returning military – both active and veterans. Our services are highly confidential as we value the privacy of all our patients.

Founder Marla Maynard's father, Louis Lewis,
was one of many not forgotten by the French for his courage.
Neither should our brave men and women today be forgotten by our own.
